Day 25 – John 16.24, 26-27: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete. In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. No, the Father himself loves you. Jude 20-21: Pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love.
Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)
Prayer reminds us of who is in charge. You don’t take your requests to someone with less authority. You take them to someone who outranks you in the solutions department. —Ramiah Lazo
Truth without love is brutality, but love without truth is hypocrisy. —Warren Wiersbe
Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened. —quoted by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, remembered from his childhood of what elderly people said of tragedies.
How can you hit and think at the same time? –Yogi Berra

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. --Calvin Coolidge
We are all failures--at least, all the best of us are. --J. M. Barrie
What makes the difference? Why do some people achieve so much? ... I know of only one factor that separates those who consistently shine from those who don’t: the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. --John Maxwell
There is no doubt in my mind that there are many ways to be a winner, but there is really only one way to be a loser and that is to fail and not look beyond the failure. --Soccer player Kyle Rote, Jr.
Never go a certain way because others are going that way. Find your own way. --Margaret Thatcher
If humans have the ability to build a small machine capable of beaming information to three satellites and then pinpointing any position on earth within 10 feet, surely the Lord knows where we are. --Bill L. Taylor
We will find a way or make one. --Hannibal
